interior wet windows

My '05 merc sl500 has constant moisture/condensation on the interior windows. Any thoughts on what cause/cure could be?

There is moisture in the car. Either you have a leak, (windows, door seals, sunroof) or your heater core is weeping. I would wait a couple of days to get a good film, then check it with your hand. If it is oily, it may be coolant, pointing to a leak in the heating circuit.

Check inside your door, door channel, make sure you don't have water tripped inside your door. Those weeping holes at the bottom need to be free of debris. Also, get down and dirty and put your nose down there. Smell around. Sniff, sniff, sniff. You might be surprised. Sometimes a spilled drink, a forgotten water bottle, maybe even something in the trunk. Either way, the Nose KNOWS!

If you've selected "EC" on your heat/air conditioning controls you've turned off the a/c compressor. Great for economy but it really helps with demisting to leave it activated.
